Try this one,

.. discover the answer and use it in a pub quiz. ( maybe more likely to crop up in an Auberge Quiz) or add it to your small talk armoury when the conversation lulls...

Who's this bloke?

Yes you are getting warm Steve-just have to look through those old "Fashion through the Ages" books and you will get roughly the right century from the popularity of the Ruff across Europe!

I'll give you that Steve close enough for me, the chap on the helpful hints side is indeed Sir Walter he with the Nottingham Bicycle Manufacturer's surname.

But the bloke on the left is the one we are after.

He is French but has something in common with Walt (as Bob Newhart used to refer to him as). It shouldn't be too hard to work out the subject of the link. Unlike Walt, his name lives on associated mainly with the link.

Keep going everyone we will get there eventually. Its the French Bloke on the Left we need the name of.

In the meantime this is what our Frenchman had in common with Walt.....(only in France)

Enjoy Bob Newharts take on it....

These things get boring if they drag on too long.

Jean NICOT

and yes his name has been preserved in Nicotine.
